By BBN Staff: On Monday afternoon, Tropical Storm Eta threw heavy rainfall to parts of Cuba, the Bahamas and Southern Florida after crossing the Florida Cayes.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported that on Sunday, Eta made landfall on Lower Matecumbe Key with maximum sustained winds of 65 mph.

Eta has since weakened to 50 mph winds and moved into the Gulf of Mexico.

Winds and rains extend outwards and winds of 43 miles per hour were reported in Homestead, Florida, NHC said.

Schools have already closed in anticipation of the storm.

Many streets were flooded in South Florida and over 13,000 people were without power.

More heavy rains are forecasted and flooding is expected along low lying areas.

NHC says that Eta may cause swells on Cuba, northwestern Bahamas and southern Florida.

All bridges in Miami, Dade were locked down on Sunday.

On Sunday morning, Eta made landfall in Cuba and last week in Nicaragua as a category 4 hurricane. This is Eta’s third landfall.

For this morning, NHC says that the risk of flooding over South Florida and Western Cuba continues.
